One of the things that impressed me most when I joined Romance Writer’s Of America, was the support and encouragement women writers give other women writers. A seasoned author who has helped me enormously is Emilie Richards. One day, I had reached the point as a wanna-be writer where I decided to quit. Getting published, I decided, was just too hard. When Emilie heard this, she basically threw an e-mail fit and threatened to drive to my house from her home in Virginia and personally drag one of my unpublished manuscripts from beneath my bed and send it in to a publisher. I remember thinking two things: 1) Emilie did not make empty threats and 2) I did NOT want her crawling beneath my bed among all the dust bunnies. I promised her I’d stay in the game, and I signed a contract with a publisher soon afterward. Emilie is one of my favorite people in the world and one of my favorite authors. It’s an honor to have my latest book featured on her website today. Blackberry Moon featured on Emilie’s website
